I am excited that OpenAjax Alliance is officially open now. Over the last months months, we have worked very hard and have made some incredible progress, depsite the heterogeneous nature of many different members representing different viewpoints. One person that definitely deserves credit for getting us to where we are today is Jon Ferraiolo - In fact, I could not think of  a second person better than Jon in help driving alliance forward, and I congrat David Boloker(IBM)  for making such an excellent hire! Please check out our website at http://www.openajax.com. What we achieved in the last few months - with lots of conference calls, emails and late night work from many different people: 1.

Adobe Open Sourcing Flex a Sign of Desperation?

(April 26, 2007) - Adobe sent out a press release this morning titled "Adobe to Open Source Flex". Is that so? Dana Blankenhorn from ZDNet says this is A sign of desperation from Adobe...Is that so?

AJAX & RIA Journal Special: Results of OpenAjax Alliance's Browser Feature Wish List

What does the Ajax community want from future browsers? How are these different requests prioritized? Web developers have done amazing things with Ajax for both Web 1.0 and Web 2.0 applications, but what barriers need to be removed to enable the next generation of browser-based innovations? The future of Ajax runtime environments matters more than ever today.  In late 2007, OpenAjax Alliance formed the Runtime Task Force (http://www.openajax.org/member/wiki/Runtime) to address this community concern. The goal is to collect, articulate, and prioritize key issues from the Ajax comm... (more)

AJAX-Heavy Applications on Google Chrome

“This is the best browser so far” is that I can say after being a Chrome user for one day. First of all, I was glad to find out that I haven’t found Chrome breaking any web application yet, especially Ajax applications. I was a little concerned about this, given that the Chrome cartoons say “Javascript runs in its own thread”, which is different from the threading model today. For example, Razor Profiler is a fairly Javascript-heavy web application that I wrote to perform JavaScript profiling and Ajax performance analysis. It includes tens of thousands of lines of JavaScript code... (more)
